Nationwide Environmental Protection Services (EPS) PCB Alternative Disposal Approval and Notifications
On this page:
In September 2017, EPA granted a non-thermal alternative disposal approval to EPS to operate three mobile chemical dechlorination units to dispose of PCBs in diesel oil and mineral dielectric fluid. This approval was issued pursuant to Section 6(e)(1) of the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) and Title 40 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) section 761.60(e).
In January 2018, EPS submitted an application to EPA requesting to modify certain conditions of its September 2017, non-thermal alternative disposal approval. On June 15, 2018, EPA approved of the requested modification. The June 2018 approval replaces the September 2017 one.
As required by the 40 CFR section 761.60(e) approval, EPS must submit a notification to EPA when using its approval to destroy PCBs in diesel oil and mineral oil dielectric fluid.
